Waste Not Want Not
‘Waste not want not’ was the mantra for the Salford garden. It was the ultimate upcycling and recycling garden.
Everything in it was repurposed from ‘stuff’ that might be useful! So, what did they do?
There were pallets that were made into compost bins and filled with the owners own compost. Wooden barrels were cut in half and made into stylish planters, crammed with flowers and even a lemon tree.
A mini orchard was made with dwarf fruit trees and wall fruit trees that were trained against a warm south east facing wall.
A curvy herb garden was bursting with every herb you could need.
An old bath was transformed into a pond with watercress growing in the corner!
To make sure that no food went to waste Alan and the team made a pickling shed. Painted in Royal Exterior Heritage Blue, it was a stunning.
Inside there was an old door and mirror feature, that was painted in weathered wood.
A new fence was given the aged look as it was painted in Timber Eco Shield Weathered Wood.
The Love your Garden team created a wonderful oasis in the middle of Salford, one that the amazing community champion Margaret Mary will enjoy every second of.
